A bit of an empty batting average guy, but could do a Panik.

Hi Eno, can you explain if there have been any studies done on Thoratic Outlet Syndrome and if any pitchers have made it back at equal or better performance? TJ surgery seems to be more mainstream these days but I have yet to see any TOS people come back equal or better - i.e. Harvey
Eno Sarris
1:34
The sample is still tiny. Chris Carpenter did it! So did some others that didn't make it back.

Goldschmidt didn't want to play?
Eno Sarris
1:34
yeah I don't get that part. I feel like Leyland was super "My guys" on this one.

What are your thoughts on fans doing "the wave" during a game?
Eno Sarris
1:35
Go to a game. Have fun. Don't stand up if you don't like the wave.

I assume the person recommending a law degree for someone who doesn't want to be a lawyer is either 1) a jokester or 2) someone who enjoys setting money on fire.

Do you think there is enough weight given, when talking about building through pitching, to the fact that higher injury risk can have a pretty big influence on your "competitive window"?
Eno Sarris
1:36
I suppose the build through pitching people would say quantity can overcome that issue, and I'd guess we're looking at that, a little bit, with the Mets.

What are your thoughts on Cameron Maybin? I'm looking for a cheap SB guy, and he's essentially an undrafted guy at this point. My league has DL slots, so the obligatory DL trips don't worry me much.
Eno Sarris
1:36
Sure, why not.
Lambo

People are drafting Paxton like he's a top 20 Sp but letting Rodon slide. Weren't their second halves roughly equivalent in "breakout value"? Paxton added Velo while Rodon improved his change up/got a better catcher.
Eno Sarris
1:37
Yeah I'm letting Paxton go at current prices. Sometimes the helium takes them too far up.

The Oriole bird can take the phanatic. He kidnapped him during an O's/Phils interleague series. He tied im to a chair and put duct tape over...whatever that thing is on his face.

Is watching baseball on my phone during my 10 person math lecture acceptable
Eno Sarris
1:38
yeesh your teacher can tell, but sure, baseball is great. also: last night's game is on MLBN and it's the fifth, I think in the sixth or seventh, that's when Lindor got Cutch's ball that was headed for LF.

For my last keeper, I can pick either Trea Turner or George Springer. If I keep turner, I can keep him for $12 this year, and for two more years at $22 each year (or 3 years for $27 each year). If I keep Springer, I can keep him forever at whatever fangraphs auction calculator spits out (this year it's $28). What say you Eno?
Eno Sarris
1:39
Turner, even with regression. Better price.

Vargas or Park? Who gets most DH ab's this year?
Eno Sarris
1:39
They already DFA'ed Park and kept him, so I think Vargas gets first shot.

How much can you trust called strikes as a skill (Nola)
Eno Sarris
1:39
Supposedly as much as swinging strikes, according to some Matt Swartz research in the past. I'm fairly heavily biased against it though.

Whatever happened to that Kakie Bryan character?
English Bob

Simple question: How many HRs does Mazara hit this year?
Eno Sarris
1:40
23.5
Tom

You were higher than many on pomeranz in your ranks. Has that changed in last month?
Eno Sarris
1:42
A little bit. I'd probably drop him a bit. For one, he's not going that high so you don't have to spend like that. Then there's the fact that even though he's Hill-like, he doesn't have that same spin rate on the fastball.
mario mendoza
1:42
Did you get the sense that Addison really understood what you said when you mentioned the increased hacking at sliders last year? Or was he just going along with what you were saying?
Eno Sarris
1:42
I didn't say anything about the zone thing. I just asked why he swung at more sliders, and that was his answer, so yeah, I think he understood the question!

2015 Castellanos killed lefties, last year he killed righties and was bad against the other hands- very strange. Do you think reverse splits are sustainable, and if so are they bad to target for someone? What do you think about Castellanos splits too for predicting this year.
Eno Sarris
1:43
Never believe in reverse splits!

Best Vermont beers? Heady is overrated and Sip of Sunshine is life.
Eno Sarris

Also like Fiddlehead.

A few years ago, Jim Johnson was coming off a 50 save season for Baltimore, went to Oakland as was absolutely TERRIBLE. That kind of drop is rather unprecedented, but I have this weird feeling it's going to happen to Mark Melancon. If you had to choose one top tier closer to completely bomb out ala Johnson, who would it be?
Eno Sarris
1:44
Even wrote it about it for ESPN. Velo, Ks not there for Melancon, definitely the guy that makes me nervous.

Just completed my first Ottoneu auction draft, and I think I'm addicted. Should I register immediately for ALL THE DRAFTS?
Eno Sarris
1:45
If you've got the time, yes. They're fun.
baby bull
1:45
also been following your scoresheet draft a little on twitter.. what is your league name?
Eno Sarris
1:46
al skeeter. I messed up a few times. Delino kept me from drafted Ed Escobar late, and now Didi is hurt and Goins/Barney is my SS situation. Not good, bob, not good. (Rest of my team is killer, I'm team 1)
